  • The Electricity Fact Sheets were developed to meet the need for a simple, easy to use source of electricity supply/demand data at the state level of aggregation. Each Fact Sheet includes a plot of monthly per capita sales of electricity for the residential, commercial and industrial markets for the year 1970. Residential appliance-ownership saturations for space heating, water heating, and air conditioning are listed by fuel type. State average values for heating and cooling degree-days are also given. In addition, each Fact Sheet lists generating capacities for privately owned electric utilities and total electric utility fossil fuel consumption by fuelmore » type, for all utilities. Electricity Market Fact Sheet data have been acquired and organized for the years 1960 thru 1973 inclusive. (auth)« less
  • The Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency has taken several steps to strengthen the agency's safeguards system in light of the recognition that the risks of nuclear weapons proliferation do not lie with major industrialized states as earlier suggested but rather with states that pursue undeclared nuclear activities. This may include states that seek to extend their influence or authority over others or find themselves in geopolitical situations in which their sovereignty is believed to be under challenge. The primary motivation for these actions by the Board of Governors was the need to address the nuclear nonproliferationmore » realities of the 1990s and to modify the underlying philosophy of the agency's safeguards system accordingly. The overriding objective is to reduce the risk that nuclear activities that should have been declared to the agency in an open, confidence-building manner do not go undetected.« less
  • Main results from the discussions on the nuclear data activities with reference to the international initiatives in the field are reviewed as resulting from the INDC advices and indications and the following related actions and programmes. In this framework relevant items are illustrated, as deduced from the evaluation of the results of the existing Coordinated Research Programs and the other initiatives and of the exigencies and aims for the new proposed ones, with particular regard to nuclear data for fusion and for non-energy applications. Particular attention is devoted to the evaluation on the progresses of FENDL data Library for fusion,more » including activation data for safety calculations, and the future plans within the international cooperation, as required by the regional and interregional Projects. In addition, results from the discussion on the nuclear data standards are presented. Most relevant conclusions and indications are illustrated accordingly.« less
  • The Philippines entered into force the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Additional Protocol (AP) in February 2010. The Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (PNRI) is the government agency responsible for implementing the AP. In June 2010 the IAEA invited the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to help conduct a joint national training seminar on the AP. DOE presented to PNRI its AP international technical assistance program, administered by the International Nuclear Safeguards and Engagement Program (INSEP), which helps partner countries implement the AP. In coordination with the IAEA, DOE established this program in 2008 to complement IAEA AP seminars with long-termmore » country-specific cooperation from the perspective of a Member State. The US version of the AP is the same version as that of non-nuclear weapon states except for the addition of a national security exclusion. Due to this, DOE cooperation with other countries enables the sharing of valuable lessons learned in implementing the AP. DOE/INSEP described to PNRI the various areas of cooperation it offers to interested countries, whether they are preparing for entry into force or already implementing the AP. Even countries that have entered the AP into force are sometimes not fully prepared to implement it well, and welcome cooperation to improve their implementation process. PNRI and DOE/INSEP subsequently agreed to cooperate in several areas to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the Philippines AP implementation. These areas include providing working-level training to PNRI staff and preparing an information document that details that training for future reference, assisting with the development of an outreach program and procedures for AP reporting and complementary access, and identifying Annex II equipment and non-nuclear materials whose export must be reported under the AP. DOE laboratory representatives, funded by INSEP, met again with PNRI in February 2011 to provide training for PNRI AP staff and investigate specific ways to improve implementation. Another meeting in July 2011 focused on preparations for outreach to industry and universities. In this paper PNRI describes current implementation of the AP in the Philippines, and both DOE/INSEP and PNRI provide their perspectives on their cooperation to enhance that implementation.« less
  • The role of State and Regional Systems of Accounting for and Control of Nuclear Materials (SSACs/RSACs) will increase within the framework of the state-level concept that is being implemented by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In order to effectively implement the concept and further establish a state-level approach, which is sought to tailor safeguards activities in a specific state accordingly, collaboration between SSACs/RSACs and the IAEA is very important. Nevertheless, the implementation of such concept is not simple. Optimal relationship between operators and national/governmental authorities and between SSACs/RSACs and the IAEA is an evolving process. Benefits of such anmore » approach as well as roles and responsibilities must be made clear to all parties involved. Acknowledging the uniqueness and diversity of SSACs/RSACs is a first step, followed by the implementation of confidence-building measures that result from an efficient communication process, and culminating with a transparent technical cooperation program. This paper analyses various aspects of the complex relationship among all parties involved in the implementation of the state-level concept: operators, national authorities, government agencies, SSACs/RSACs, and the IAEA. The author analyses the intricate network of possibilities to improve cooperation and discusses issues involving the provision of additional and voluntary information by SSACs/RSACs to the IAEA.« less
